Obey without question!

Here comes the first part of promised Guard content! Starting off with a not-quite-nice gentleman.

Lieutenant-Comissar Agnus Espian is an attachment to the 2nd Platoon in times of need, when the guardsmen of the 32- need that little extra morale boost.


Of course there are more pictures.

Agnus is converted from my favourite Comissar model - the guy with the power fist. Unfortunately, since Infantry Squad Comissars cannot equip fists, I had to alter him a little bit.



I'm quite pleased with the result, it was a simple arm swap that required some metal polishing on the back, to remove the power generator he carried there.


A little closeup on his breastplate and belt:


And on the Imperial Infantryman's Uplifting Primer he is reading from.


Also, the Comissar only joins the 2nd when I intend to use them as a power weapon blob, so the sergeants needed some new equipment sent their way.


Yay for first power weapons in the Guard! They're magnetised of course, so I can swap them with chainswords they usually carry. I will most likely end up doing a 4th power weapon for the 324 squad, but those were made with a tournament deadline in mind and I only fielded 3 squads there.




From a gaming perspective this squad is actually quite damn powerful, even without Straken (with him it turns into quite a killing machine). On the tournament they managed to chop up a Grey Hunter squad with Njal (the bugger survived though, long enough for more Grey Hunters to pour into the combat), 10 Eldar Harlequins that assaulted them and a squad of 8 Khorne Berserkers. It sure was a lot of fun to roll those dice and chop up such killy things in close combat as IG!

And that's it for today,s tay tuned for more! Also you might have noticed a new panel on the right. More on this soon as well!

It's an arm from the new tank Commander. This one is from a Chimera I think.

Thanks :)

They're nothign special though. Just find a Grey Knight player and grab some Flachions off him. Grey Knights don't really use them at all and there's like 8 in each box.
